DESCRIPTION: Simple and reliable information about the history and background of the conflict. It examines the deeply rooted divisions within Northern Ireland society which have led to the conflict in which over three thousand people have been killed since 1969. On the other hand there are glimmers of hope ending with the comment: 'We are all part of the problem and potentially part of the solution'. Published in 1992, it remains useful background for understanding current developments.

The format of the pamphlet is a series of articles by several authors, most of them previously published within the British or Irish pacifist movement.
